In short: Tough challenging course with a lovely finish In full: Not as warm this year I had to do it for Marathon training so it was a good tester. Mistoke Howard Stote for someone I know must of thought I was mad. Not a PB but 8 mins quicker than last year. Therei s a Hill from 9 mile marker all the way to the 10 mile marker that F*&^s you up. Not for the faint hearted. Really well organised and nice finish with a good sports massage at the end. A few jobsworths at the start and my number didn't arrive cause they were too tight to pay the postage apart from that it's well worth doing especially if your training for a marathon in the Autumn. Had to throw my trainers away after race as the were wasted. Date of review: September 25, 2007
In short: Wouldn't dream of missing it In full: The bits I really liked: a) easy public transport access, b) paper cups (enviromentally friendly) c) the unexpected and rather heavy 2007 memento which made the folks back home think that I'd actually won! If only it was traffic-free too... Date of review: August 4, 2007
In short: I'll be back In full: Loved the trophy. Like clockwork except the finish, because I'm one of the slower runners it was difficult to find my way into the park at the end & a couple of roundabouts towards the end had to be negotiated without help. Some of the marshalls looked fed up & were wandering off. Hope those behind me were ok Date of review: July 30, 2007
In short: Did it last year and this year was even better, very well organised good for spectators. Really enjoyed it this year and nice to see a photographer on board. Great momento much better than last year, be back again next yr thanks all. Date of review: July 28, 2007
In short: Little bit hilly (especially miles 3 and 9) but a nice descent into a nice finish with a good crowd. Well marshalled and well worth doing In full: Nice to run a race 10 minutes from home on familiar streets... Though less nice knowing what hills were still to come... Managed to run a negative split which was as pleasing as it was surprising.
Well marshalled, well organised event with a nice momento for my troubles! Date of review: July 25, 2007
